This is all Maria's fault; and I mean that in the best way.  I had to pick up my copy of Three Men in A Boat by Jerome K Jerome today and I don't go into a used bookstore without looking around.  I additionally found Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon and The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster.  I've always loved Chabon, and Auster I've recently developed some serious interest in.

I didn't need to shopping, but it happens.  I'll be reading Chabon very soon; as in after my boat ride.

I'll be interested in your comments on Gentlemen of the Road.In his afterword, Chabon says he toyed with naming it "Jews with Swords."

Either you're a big Chabon fan or you've read everything under the sun that has been published at least two years ago.

Oh and Gentlemen of the Road is a classy name, but Jews with Swords would have sold better.
